Annual Committee Meeting

All students are expected to make reasonable progress toward the degree.  Once a student has been admitted to candidacy for the Ph.D., the Dissertation Committee will meet with the student annually to review progress.  It is the student’s responsibility to set up these annual meetings.  Following this meeting, the student will prepare a written summary of recommendations that emerged from the meeting, each member of the committee will indicate approval by signing the summary, and the final document will be submitted to the Graduate Coordinator to become part of the student’s file. These reports must be submitted by November 1 of each year.  The reports are used by the EEB Graduate Student Evaluation Committee in its annual review of graduate student progress and are important evidence when the Committee awards merit fellowships and research and travel funds. Flagrant or repeated violation of this expectation may affect students’ eligibility for TA/RA appointments or fellowships. A formal meeting of the Dissertation Committee can be requested at any time by the student, or any member of the Dissertation Committee.
